Overview & Highlights
Combine the famous train ride along the rim and through the gorges of desert Mexico's Copper Canyon with the beaches of Baja California.
- Teotihuacan and Guadeloupe shrine, Mexico City
- Zipline and cablecar tour
- Elephant Rock, Jesuit Mission and Cusarare waterfall
Inland from Mexico's west coast the seemingly fathomless Copper Canyon cuts a swathe through the barren desert crust. You’ll ride world-famous railway traversing this route, with views of some of the continent's most spectacular mountain scenery. There are a score of ravines and gorges, and an infinite variety of landscape and vegetation from snow-dusted peaks smothered in conifers to sub-tropical citrus groves.
Mexico’s Baja California is a finger of desert stretching 1,300km south from California, separated from the Mexican mainland by the Sea of Cortés. The southern tip, with its chalk-white sands and translucent aquamarine seas, attracts visitors from all over the world, especially the US and Europe. But instead of staying at a large beach resort you will be based in the colonial centre of arty San José del Cabo, where there are plenty of outdoor and cultural activities to choose from.
